Lift at red lights

* A SMART TWOFOR, driven solo, develops 150-pounds lift at rest.
* My 1st-gen Insight, solo, with tank on reserve, develops 204- pounds lift at rest.
* A Tesla Model X, driven solo, develops 1,050- pounds lift at rest.
* My Toyota T-100, solo, unladen, and with the fuel tank on reserve, at rest, generates 1,522-pounds lift.

If you're arguing what I think you are--that atmospheric pressure integrated over all surfaces, top and bottom, of a vehicle at rest produces a lift force--your conclusion is not correct. It doesn't matter the shape of the surfaces; at rest and with no wind ("in all conditions, by default"), the force resultant from pressure will be *zero*.
